FA chairman Greg Dyke has dismissed suggestions the recent corruption scandal surrounding Fifa will help England renew their bid to host the 2018 World Cup bid.

Nine senior executives at Fifa and five sports and media promotions executives have been charged by US prosecutors over allegations they were involved in bribes totalling $150m (£100m) for more than two decades and several senior Fifa officials were arrested at a hotel in Zurich as part of the the corruption investigation.

The footballing world governing body is also the subject of a criminal investigation by a separate inquiry from Swiss authorities over the awarding of the 2018 World Cup to Russia and the 2022 competition to Qatar.

Fifa president Sepp Blatter – while not one of those who is under investigation – is facing increasing calls to stand down as its leader following the "rampant, systemic and deep-rooted" corruption allegations.

England was one of the candidates hoping to be given the World Cup in 2018, but ended up with only one vote following its high-profile £19m campaign. Following the launch of the criminal investigation, there were suggestions the race to hold the World Cups could be reopened.

Former Uefa president Lennart Johansson was one of those who backed England to replace Russia as holders of the competition in the wake of the corruption allegations.

He said: "I expect they will reconsider the [World Cup] decisions. Blatter himself has said that the decision to go east wasn't proper. I am sure the initiative will now be taken to make a new decision.

"England haven't had it since 1966 and it's considered 'the motherland of football', whatever we might think. They are worthy of the attention."

Fifa have previously ruled out a revote to decide who will be holding the 2018 and 2022 World Cups despite the criminal investigation

Dyke has now said there is "no chance" of England getting another chance of hosting either World Cups.

"This has absolutely nothing to do with an England bid for the World Cup or England hosting the World Cup. This is about one thing - how do you rebuild a reputation as an open, fair and honest organisation with Blatter still at the helm?" said Dyke.

Dyke said that Blatter "has to go" following the corruption and bribery scandal. However, he still believes the Fifa presidential election – in which Blatter is hoping to be elected for a fifth time – should still go ahead tomorrow (29 May) as planned, believing challenger Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan could win and oust the 79-year-old.

Uefa are among those who believe the presidential election should be postponed over concerns it will turn into a "farce".

The European footballing body said they are considering boycotting the event in protest at the "corruption is deeply rooted in Fifa's culture".

A Uefa spokesperson added: "In the meantime, the members of the Uefa Executive Committee are convinced that there is a strong need for a change to the leadership of this Fifa and strongly believe that the Fifa Congress should be postponed, with new Fifa presidential elections to be organised within the next six months."
